Boards with Narrow waist widths

I'm searching for a new board with a narrow waist width. I (male) have small (size 6) feet for my size (170cm / 65kg) and am seeking a longer board than I have (149 and 150) that doesn't give me heaps of underhang.


Park boards are no worries, but I'd like a 152-155 for some powder/all mountain.

Does anyone have any board suggestions? Ideally I'd like a camrock/Camflat/full camber and true twin or at least directional twin.

A board to consider would be the Gnu Ladies Choice EC2 PBTX 2016 snowboard. It would have a 24.4 cm waist width.

Just found the Capita NAS which would be ideal in 153 with a 242mm width, however it's relatively stiff and I'd ideally like something a bit softer!

Hah, too fast for me! The custom camber twin has a fairly narrow waist I think?

Unfortunately, most of em are branded as chic boards
So the graphics are pretty gay, if you're a dude.

If you're a young guy, it'll prolly be to tough for ya.?
Ridin' a chic's board, yeesh.
Can't wait for my friends to see me ridin' this, haha

What you might not realize, that's exactly what you should be thinkin'
Because that is board you are gonna blow em away on.

I've owned em, Wrath has @ least 2 in quiver of 5 or so.
We are smart, & a little bit older. That shit goes right over our head, we dont even know what your talkin about?
I even have a NS infinity 156 if you are man enough to try it.

I don't know the exact width on it?
But I had a NS Lotus 57 rockin' 9's shrunk down to 8's.

I liked it so much I started searching around Craigslist for a longer one, didn't really care what model, just a longer NS.

A found a few more.

Started ridin' the bigger ones, which were not chic ones. They don't make a chic one bigger than 57. That I could find anyway.

A couple of were also wide boards, one of which was shorter than I would have liked & @ the time didn't really want it to be a wide.

It turned into the best board I've ever had, it crushed everything I could throw @ it, almost.
Ended up smashing it up. Broke my heart, I had been taking really good care of it. Nary a scratch. Caved the side in, still scratch free. Fawk.

Now all I wanna ride is wides.
Once you learn how to tweak your stance, you'll come to dark side.

Without those tweaks though its not even rideable IMO
I can't get on someone else wide board, that's set up for their big ass feet.
It won't work.


TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

Ha. I'm actually a coach, over 25. I could buy a chicks board, if the graphics were bad enough I'd just put a custom wrap on it. Ideally I'd rather buy a dudes stick though.

I know if I'm desperate I can handle large boards, I sat one of the top certifications on a 156mw, and I played on a 168w in Canada once. It's just actually finding narrow waist boards is difficult without literally inspecting and comparing every board - Sure you can search by board length, but never by waist width!
